Study Sheds Light On Role Of Fish Oil In Improving Fat Storage,Improving Fat Metabolism

December 10, 2010: 10:08 AM EST
A review of several studies probing the mechanisms underlying the health impact of omega-3 fish oils has found that omega-3 fatty acids induce changes in the metabolism of fat cells that lead to more efficient glucose and lipid metabolism. Omega-3 fatty acids reduce plasma triglycerides, increase insulin sensitivity and lower blood pressure, inflammation, thrombosis and arrhythmia, all of which cut the risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes. According to the researchers, “there is compelling evidence that fish oil mediates its beneficial effects on metabolic syndrome by improving adipose (fat) tissue storage and secretory functions and by reducing inflammation.”
